Fox Sports Midwest reports that the Blues had their highest all-time ratings in 2013-14.

Blues will give out t-shirts for Game 1

The St. Louis Blues usually hand out one of two items during the playoffs: Rally towels or Thunder Sticks. The towels are always fun and Thunder Sticks are … well, no one would miss them. The Blues have decided to do things a little bit differently for Game 1 against the Blackhawks. This time they’re […]


Hitchcock says every injured player will play in the first round

Are you worried about all of the injuries on the St. Louis roster? Maybe you shouldn’t be. While it’s unclear who will return and when, it’s pretty interesting seeing Hitchcock make such a bold statement. It’s a telling comment, but it leaves him a bit of wiggle room. Yes, that means everyone. In case you’ve […]


Steve Ott jokes about having one of the NHL’s worst plus/minus ratings

The plus/minus statistic is a silly one. It tries to paint a picture of an NHL skater’s value outside of scoring goals and assists, specifically if they’re on the ice for more goals scored than goals allowed, but it’s extremely limited. If you ever hear an argument made and plus/minus is the leading talking point, […]

The 2013-14 regular season is officially in the books. As the Blues turn their attention on the playoffs, let’s take a quick look back at the season that was.

Video: Mike Rupp’s dirty hit on T.J. Oshie

Here’s Mike Rupp’s dirty hit to the head of T.J. Oshie. Ugly stuff. Rupp received a game misconduct for “Intent to Injure” as well as a five-minute major. More discipline from the league should be coming.

David Backes is day-to-day, will miss some time

David Backes is considered day-to-day and will miss potentially the final few games of the regular season. Backes hobbled off when he blocked a shot and fell awkwardly against the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night. This looks like the exact definition of a “if he had to play, he would” injury. Backes needs some time […]


Jaroslav Halak asks to sit out against Blues

Jaroslav Halak won’t face the Blues on Tuesday night. Pretty bold and bizarre move by Halak as the Capitals are struggling to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Capitals trade for the goaltender only to watch him sit out when they need him most. Not the best way to endear yourself with your new management […]
